Ireland's best-loved playwright, poet and author John B. Keane was born in Listowel, Co. Kerry in 1928 and died there on 30 May this year. In all he wrote 19 plays and 32 works of prose and poetry.

Sive, Keane's first and arguably greatest play, is an established classic. Set in a remote area of North Kerry, the play tells the story of the promise in marriage, of the young and beautiful Sive to an old man.

Now in a new production, Garry Hynes directs a major Irish cast that includes Anna Manahan, Eamonn Morrisey and Derbhie Crotty.

Sive is Druid's first appearance at the Festival since their acclaimed trilogy of plays by Martin McDonagh in 1997. Since that time the company has gone on to win numerous awards including Broadway's Tony award for Director Garry Hynes.
